Higuain & Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea fans react to line-up vs Sheffield Wednesday

Chelsea vs Sheffield Wednesday

Chelsea played host to Sheffield Wednesday in the 4th round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

Chelsea have already booked their place in the League Cup final this week after beating Tottenham on penalties.

The Blues will no doubt be keen to progress as far as possible in this cup as well.

Chelsea beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 in their last FA Cup outing while Sheffield Wednesday beat Luton 1-0 in a replay.

Higuain & Hudson-Odoi both start for Chelsea

Ahead of Sunday’s game, there were two big talking points heading into the match.

The first being if Gonzalo Higuain would make his Chelsea debut.

The second being Callum Hudson-Odoi handing in a transfer request.

Hudson-Odoi has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich for much of January.

Then, on Saturday, it was reported by Sky Sports that the youngster handed in a transfer request.

Despite the transfer request, both Hudson-Odoi and Higuain started for Chelsea vs Wednesday.

Whether or not this means Hudson-Odoi will remain a Chelsea player is unknown.

However, Chelsea fans have certainly had their say on the duo starting.
